How-To: Superhero Garden Gnomes

This excellent lawn ornament enhancement comes to us via Laura at CRAFT:

Transform a garden-variety garden gnome into your favorite superhero! Awesome. Instructables user The Papier Boy has a step-by-step tutorial up. He uses Sculpey and Bondo to subtly alter the shape of the gnomes, adding superhero masks and details, like bat ears on Gnome Batman.

    In these modern times, you can obtain garden
    gnomes in a range of types – from
    the most innocent of pastimes to the most naughty of moonings – and developed
    from components different from plastic to terracotta. They are regarded as so
    tacky that they are for good banned from the prestigious Chelsea Flower Display,
    a truth that is looked on by a lot of center class English gardeners as pure and
    utter snobbery. http://www.homeyardandgarden.com

    I’ve attended in a garden show and their concept was great, they need to display their garden that reflects who they are and it should be a product of their creative mind, and a gnome superhero is a great idea to enhance one’s garden.
